I don’t know where I found this saying–probably in a self-improvement or personal growth blog—all I know is that it resonates so much with me:
I am the most important mover of my chances in life.
When I read this, I highlighted the text, enlarged the font, printed it out, cut it into a strip, placed it on my desk next to my computer, and have been looking at it ever since for the last two years.
This little piece of self-improvement kept me going when I wanted to quit; it pushed me to work harder when I got complacent; it reminds me on a daily basis that my future is mine, and only I can make it happen. It’s a pep talk every time I look at it.
